What Produce is In-Season in December?
Because of modern agriculture and our ability to ship produce all over the globe, most foods are available year round. But just because we can eat a tomato in the dead of winter, doesn’t mean we should be doing it.
Eating seasonally is one of the best things you can do both for your health and for the environment. Not only does it promote a genuine connection with the earth’s resources, eating locally-grown, seasonal foods helps limit the amount of greenhouse gas emissions we generate by shipping foods where they don’t naturally belong. Not to mention seasonal produce is more nutritious!
Once upon a time, eating seasonally was the only way to survive. Today, it’s a choice — and one that has both environmental and physical impacts. Ready to start? Here’s what’s in-season in December. Yum!
